SAP TDMS System Shell creation

Hello,

I am new to SAP TDMS. I want to know about System shell creation.

Is System shell used to create a totally "new system" or can it be done on an existing system? Can it be done on an existing system by using a separate client??

If we use existing system what happens to its already present data. As per the Operations guide it says we need to do a Homogeneous system copy by using TDMS tools.This will delete the data in existing system.So does it mean all database content will be deleted or only the client specific data?

Many Thanks.

Ravindra

    Hi Ravindra

    If a System Shell is performed all the data in the receiver system will be lost. System shell is a form of SAP system copy where instead of doing a full system copy a selective system copy is performed. So as in system copy in shell too all the data on the receiver is lost.
